Charlotte’s Film Critics Talk Oscars, Diversity In Hollywood And Recent Releases

This weekend’s Academy Awards has again come under fire for the lack of diversity in the nominees.  For the second year in a row, every actor nominee is white.  We talk about that and the backlash from actors vowing to boycott the Oscars with Eric Frazier, who wrote an op-ed piece in the Observer about this.  And we hash out the remaining nominees with two of Charlotte’s film critics.
